There are days when the world isn’t frayed at the edges
  And people remember your name
These are days when your friends all come good on their pledges
  And nobody thinks it’s a shame
There are days you wake to the smiles and the birdsong
  And days when the clouds fly away
When the radio plays you’re alert by the third song
  And know you have something to say

Other days, like today, are much greyer and bleaker
  And sadness has leaked all around
And those are the days when the love seems much weaker
  And these are the days I have found
Give me time and I know that my smile will be broader
  And sadness will give me a miss
I just have to dig for you see I’m a  hoarder
  And I can remember your kiss

Give me days special days when you say that you love me
  And I can face anything more
On those days when there’s nothing but blue sky above me
  And nothing but laughter in store
I can think of the days in my mind or the future
  And know you will want us to meet
I’ll tack on such dreams to today with a suture
  And then everything will be sweet
